Introducing Emmeline

Emmeline is not a person, she is this super sweet apron designed by the wonderful Meg of SewLiberated. I purchased the Emmeline Apron pattern about a year ago fully intending on making one for myself but of course some things got in the way and I didn't have much personal sewing time last year.

My friend Stephanie has been hinting for as long as I have had this pattern that she certainly wouldn't mind being a product tester if I wanted to make this apron for her and she just had a birthday this past week so what better motivation than to make it for a gift! I finished this apron up with literally no time to spare. I was clipping off loose threads when getting dressed for dinner, but the important thing is that I finished it and she loves it!

This pattern was so great to work from. It was clear, with no errors and everything worked out brilliantly. It took me a little longer to finish it than I thought (ahem... see clipping threads off while getting dressed) but it was still a great sew. I am sure that I will be making one for myself soon (most likely reversable with these fabrics!)


  1. Thanks Bonnie! I love it. I've been wanting a nice full apron for a long time!

  2. I really like the design of that apron. It's very cute! I wish I could sew!

  3. @Stephanie

    You're welcome! I'm glad you like it and thank you for giving me the motivation to finally make that pattern. I'm going to have to make one for myself - my old ratty faded plaid apron isn't the greatest for when I have company over!

    Me too! Meg did a lovely job with the pattern. I might make some up for sale in my shop in the near future - I will post on my blog if/when they are ready. Thanks for visiting!


I love to hear from you! Please leave a comment and I will reply in the comments section unless you leave me an email address and ask me to reply that way.
